This story is so sad. Just moments before he was fatally wounded in an unprovoked attack, a San Diego police officer performed one last act of kindness; he bought a child food while buying his own dinner.
Ex-Marine Officer Jeremy Henwood, 36, stopped at the McDonald’s. Surveillance video shows Henwood speaking with a boy who apparently asked for 10 cents to buy cookies. The officer ended up buying lunch for the kid instead before leaving the store.
Shortly after , Henwood was shot while sitting inside his patrol car. Henwood had only made it six blocks from the McDonald’s; it would be the last place he was seen alive. The loss of this brave man, who served his country as a marine through several tours of duty and then served his community as a police officer, is tragic. But he left this world doing good.
